What's the big deal about Young Living

4-H Stock Show!

Remember when I told you we went out and bought six rabbits because we felt like we didn't already have enough to take care of around here with eight kids, a turtle, a dog, and five aquariums?

Well, the girls competed in the 4-H stock show and we are very proud of their efforts!

Three rabbits won ribbons and one placed high enough to make it to the auction on Saturday. (Did you know there are auctions for rabbits?! Neither did I!)

The girls learned good lessons about hard work and how it pays to have superior genes, and mom learned that she's apparently allergic to rabbits and being in closed quarters with over 120 of them for 8+ hours in one day makes for a miserable experience.

She also thought she would one day die a happy woman if she ever heard someone say of her what a judge said about one of the rabbits.

"This one would be a winner if it just had more meat on its hind section."

  1. For some reason when I read the title I read, “4 H Stock Soup” and then there were the girls with rabbits and I was like “Good Heavens! Now that the 4-H show is over, she’s going to show up how to make RABBIT SOUP???”

    Whew! Then I re-read it.

      @brenda, Bwahahahaha! Well, they ARE meat rabbits…

      • Well, we have 2 rabbits and whenever we talk about money being tight or the girls hear about someone losing their job, husband always tells them not to worry–we’ve got rabbit stew waiting in the backyard.

        They always fail to see the humor.

  2. Crackin’ up! Congrats to the girls though!

  3. Congrats to the kids! and the rabbits! Sorry about the allergies. And thank you for the laugh this morning. That was great!

  4. Funny as usual :)

  5. Congrats! I need to e-mail you with all my questions about rabbits as the girls would join 4-H if they had an animal to show. Scott said no to the horse and we can’t have goats so on to rabbits:)


  1. […] you just about die from the cuteness?! That’s what we were hoping the bidders at the stock show auction would think when we sent these girls out into the ring with the award winning bunny rabbit, but we […]
